're not going to balance the budget in ten years because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> jon: so president obama there appearing on abc telling george stephanopoulos that balancing the budget is not his goal and attacking congressman paul ryan for the budget that he proposed. so, jim, to you first. did the media ignore the president's contention that a balanced budget is not really in the realm for him? >> i don't think the media have ever thought of that as a particularly high goal for themselves and yet, as scott loopo, american conservative and matt miller "the washington post," both pointed out the problem the president's had on this sort of moderate budget course he's trying to strike, which is part tax increases and part this alleged spending cuts, nobody is really for that and too vague and also used the word gut g-u-t when it refers to medicare i think is the beginning of the 201
" is next. >> john: good evening. i'm john fuglesang and tonight on "viewpoint," congressman paul ryan has presented a new version of the paul ryan budget but i'm calling it the agoraphobia budget because it is never leaving the house. we're joined by louise slaughter and alan grayson. the papal conclave begins in rome. we've got a big conclai. everyone agrees the cardinals should pick a vibrant young man in his early 70s. we're joined by progressive theologian john shelby spong. christmas is coming early for comedians because sarah palin is writing a book about christmas. birthday of liza minnelli, darryl strawberry, governor mitt romney and adult film star ron jeremy, three of whom are actually quite wholesome people. black smoke rome, cardinals the big vote. this is "vatican idol." >> john: good evening i'm john fuglesang and this is "viewpoint." democrats and house republicans agree, the nation needs a budget. house budget chair paul ryan led his committee to a podium where he unveiled his latest if you'll excuse the term path to prosperity. so just how are you going to do it this time
's not at the top of my list. and he's more interested -- i mean, he thinks that the paul ryan budget really hurts education and research. and he thinks if the government doesn't invest in education and research, then we will not be internationally competitive. the republicans have a completely different view. it's great that they're talking. i think it's wonderful that they're talking but they are at opposite ends philosophically about this. >>brian: the house says okay, there is the budget. you don't like it? the senate is going to do something interesting. they are going to have a budget. excited about it? a senate republican, snorkelly ayotte on -- senator kelly ayotte on greta van susteren's show last night. >> i'm glad the democrats are finally after four years going to do a budget in the senate but basically he's rendering himself irrelevant because his is going to come after the house puts forth his budget, after the senate does his budget. where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. i'm on the budget committee and we'll be doing it without his
. in an interview with abc news, the president slammed paul ryan's insistence on deep, drastic spending cuts saying we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. in fact for the next ten years, it's going to be in a sustainable place. the question is, can we do it smarter, can we do it better? if the only goal of a budget was to make it as small as possible, congressman paul ryan would be your man. his budget reduces the deficit by an additional $2.75 trillion compared to senator patty murray's plan. but the race to a budget is not the goal of a budget. foumtly a budget is a reflection of your core values, and which investments you believe are necessary. to those who say government should treat its budgets the way households do, it's important to point out that a family's budget works the same way. parents don't pull their kids out of school or deliberately starve themselves or stop going to the doctor for the singular doing mattic purpose of spending as little as possible. and taking out kretic is both part of american culture and key to growing the economy. for instance, 71% of americans ta

of the party, senator marco rubio and paul ryan will speak just 11 minutes. the question, is c-pac giving the wrong people the biggest platform? pete? >> yes, i bet you anything my friend will cain will totally agree with me. on much of this, the idea that this organization and other conservative commentators i thought are more out for themselves, making money for themselves than the conservative movement this is antithetical of what the conservative movement needs to move. why not bring strom thurmond back from the dead? donald trump and sarah palin are done. put the fork in them. the future is marco rubio and the day groups and they are not inviting them. >> they haven't this year. will. >> that depends on c-pac wants to be if they want to guide future direction of republican party, the answer quite obviously no. donald trump has a bigger role than chris christie is absurd. but if you want to sell tickets, you have probably done are right things. and some who realize those two things aren't necessarily mutually exclusive. and ran paul proved that. stand on principles, be smart, get peop
